"March 2015 Discussion Post: Least Favorite Creepypasta Genres & Topics"

Written by

Estimated reading time β€” 1 minute

This month’s post is intended as a companion to last month’s Favorite Creepypasta Genres & Topics discussion. I’d like to get a handle on the current state of the community’s likes and dislikes, both for my own use when selecting pastas as well as for the benefit of aspiring authors. I plan on linking both this post and the prior topic when I re-open submissions, in an attempt to reduce the signal to noise ratio of submissions. It’s my hope that, upon seeing which topics and genres are generally disliked versus which are enjoyed, some prospective authors will self-police a bit and refrain from sending in stories for which this particular community has expressed overwhelming distaste, if any such topics/genres come to light.

So: Which topics and genres of creepypasta are your LEAST favorites?

To clarify the “topics vs genres” categorization, I’ll copy & paste my example from last month here:

For example, we’ve had a minor uptick in sci-fi submissions (this would be the genre) as of late, and I’ve seen a few people mentioning that they’re specifically enjoying the alien stories (and β€˜aliens’ would be the topic). That would be the sort of information that I’m looking for with this question. Do you prefer reading about zombies? Or do you prefer post-apocalyptic fare without the z-word included? Do you always hope to see more pastas with a mythological bent? Or perhaps you’re more into the occult tales? I hope that you get the idea!

I hope that everyone will weigh in on this topic, and if you haven’t yet contributed to last month’s post, please do so when you can.

Thanks, everyone!
